Through a multidisciplinary artistic practice, Valentina Alvarado (Maracaibo, 1986) explores the hybridization of the various plastic languages she uses - collage, ceramics, photography and analog film - to elaborate discourses linked to memory and to the unfolded identity in unfinished geographies. Her work establishes a constant dialogue between digital and analogue where poetry and politics are part of his artistic proposal. Graduated in Graphic Design at the University of Zulia, where she was a professor at the Faculty of Experimental Arts, she moved to Barcelona where she completed the Master's Degree in Contemporary Artistic Creation at the UB.
